Authorities in Louisiana said a man who shared a mobile home where four people were killed has been charged with first degree murder in their deaths.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff Tony Mancuso said Tuesday that investigators believe 52-year-old Lee Roy Williams Jr. acted alone. The sheriff described the killings as "brutal murders," but he wouldn't say how they were killed Sept. 3.

He also said Williams may have sold or traded some important evidence but wouldn't describe the items.

Williams also received a $150,000 bond for two counts of attempted first degree murder for attempting to run over deputies during a standoff in Baton Rouge near LSU last Thursday, according to the Baton Rouge District Court Bond Office.
